to know that there's an fbi investigation that has begun, and will take some time to be completed. that will tell us with certainty what transpired, but our current best assessment, based on the information that we have at present, is that in fact, what this began as was a spontaneous, not a premeditated, response to what had transpired in cairo. >> now, there are many possible explanations for why the administration took so long to budge from that line. everything from an excess of caution to the fog of war to incompetence or domestic politics. we don't have the answer nailed down on that. what we do have, though, is a collection of inconsistencies between the administration line and our own understanding of the facts. recall our exclusive reporting last night based on several sources that not one single fbi investigator has yet to even set foot at the crime scene in benghazi. that remains true tonight. yet when asked to comment, an american official told us that fbi investigators on the ground are not experiencing any roadblocks and are working well with libyan officials. that s
with breaking news that you will only see right here on "360." after being the first to tell you that fbi investigators still have not set foot in the ruins of the american consulate in benghazi, libya, tonight we're the first to tell you why. tonight, we have the likely reason and we have it from a top law enforcement official. four americans as you know were murdered in the assault, one american ambassador, christopher stevens. that was two and a half weeks ago. two and a half weeks that have seen the administration first describe this as a spontaneous outburst even though our reporting revealed that officials knew within 24 hours that it was not. only much later did they back away from that assessment. today, the director of national intelligence, james clapper, put out a statement explaining that early evidence supported that theory so that's why they told the white house and congress. clapper says that throughout the investigation, his agency made it clear that the assessment was preliminary and could change. neither his statement nor our sources specify a time frame for the dni's ch

retired fbi agent john anthony. he gives the tip zero credibility. >> whether they find a body or not, i don't know. i doubt that. but if they do, i guarantee you it is not jimmy hoffa. >> reporter: anthony says the fbi has a good idea who pulled off the hit and where, but it sure wasn't in this neighborhood. why could the fbi never find the body? >> because there is no body. the body, in our opinion, was cremated or was thrown into a vat of acid or whatever. >> reporter: whatever happened, the mafia backed teamster boss is legendary. celebrated in movies like this one, going up against u.s. attorney general robert kennedy. >> the justice department has plenty on you mr. hoffa. >> you don't impress me. i don't need $300 million and my brother elected -- >> reporter: many failed attempts to find him, tips had him buried in cement near the end zone of old giant stadium. they looked for blood stains on the floor boards of an old detroit home. hoffa's middle name was riddle and so is trying to pinpoint why his fate captivates so many people. >> he was a negotiator and powerful and combined t

the fbi is investigating. my guess is there's no formal al qaeda connection. there are groups that are supporters, it's a shadowy group of people. they might have had some historical connections to al qaeda in the past. certainly the leader of al qaeda talked about the recent death of a kind of key al qaeda libyan leader just before this event, there might be some kind of connection. but i think it's pretty early to be making any definitive conclusio conclusions. the libyans have arrested some people. there is an interview with a libyan official who says this seems to be a deliberate attack, because not only did they attack a consulate, they also attacked a safe house. it implies some kind of penetration of the libyan security services by this group. >> and it also occurred on the 11th anniversary of 9/11. the effort to sack the u.s. embassy in cairo also occurring on the anniversary of 9/11. is that coincidental? what do you make of that? >> it's a very interesting coincidence, if it's a coincidence. the history here, wolf, is that no one was paying any attention to this vide
this was about. and then on further investigation by the fbi, it was discovered that his friends and with friends like these, who needs enemies? had played a trick on him. they had posted that stupid message as a hoax. this is not cool. i think we all know you don't joke about explosives anywhere near or about aircraft that fly with passengers. and this passenger had 69 people on board. fbi says, we are probably likely to see some charges that come about because of this. but not from the passenger. he's free to go and all those passengers are cleared and that flight is cleared as well. but look out, jokesters, not a laughing matter. >>> back out of the breaking news now, i don't know if you saw "mission impossible," tom cruise and dubai. do you know what an appeal this is for people who want a vacation? if you don't know much about this place, it is awesome. in fact, our cnn producer with cnn international is going to take us there today, just for -- >> reporter: most people around the world look forward to the summertime. but here in the uae, we dread it. temperatures soar more than 110 degrees
questions heading over his head. >> it seems miguel has made contact with fbi. he's not under direct investigation for anything and we need to make that clear, right? >> reporter: as far as we know owes not. they haven't closed the door completely on that. what the fbi doesn't want to do, they don't want to overreact. they don't want to do the same thing that other people have done. they don't want to make the mistake of shutting down free speech and creating problems in a different way. so they want to investigate everything having to do with this case, including his past including what he told his cast members and there there was any fraudulent activity in making this film. at this point he doesn't seem to be under direct threat of investigation. >> i you know got your hands on the film permit for the film that is now called "innocence of muslims." what did it shed light on in terms of the story? >> reporter: these film permits are just given out. the film did air or showed just a couple of blocks from here in some form in june but the film permit itself are usually public record,

's important to know there's an fbi investigation that has begun and will take some time to be completed. that will tell us with certainty what transpired. but our current best assessment based on the information we have at present is, in fact, what this began as was a spontaneous, not a premeditated response to what had transpired in cairo. in cairo, as you know, a few hours earlier, there was a violent protest that was undertaken in reaction to this very offensive video that was disseminated. >> that was u.n. ambassador susan rice yesterday morning. now, many have a hard time believing that, including senator lindsey graham. his colleague, john mccain also believes the assault was pre-planned. >> why do you think they're calling it a spontaneous attack? >> i have no clue. the facts -- the facts are so clear that heavy weapons and rocket propelled grenades, indirect fire and direct fire used could not be spontaneous. >> with that kind of pushback, the state department seems to be trying to soften ambassador rice's statement. listen. >> we've heard a number of different things from libya

in sending fbi forces to help investigate, find out who was responsible. but i think the thing that was so striking about chris was that he would have wanted them to be brought to justice under a rule of law that reflected the transition libya has made from a truly autocratic state where justice was never guaranteed to one where you could see these people tried in a fair courtroom and sentenced. >> you knew him well. >> i knew him well. >> for how many years? >> at least 20. we go back a long way. he was a wonderful man who had a sense of the streets as well as the elites. and despite the security restrictions that limit so many diplomats, he was always willing to go out. he saw libya through all three transition phases. two years under mow mar gadha m, then the liaison ambassador. >> and he worked hard to get rid of gadhafi through these rebels? >> absolutely. and he has reached out and he really knows the streets. the libyan people. in the same way he's known in every place i've ever known him, he has been one who has really been engaged. when he looks for what role the united states sho
